The Yamaha YZF-R7 OW02 is a race homologation motorcycle of limited production run of only 500 units. It was designed to compete in the Superbike World Championship and Suzuka 8 Hours endurance races.

It has a 749 cc inline-4 DOHC producing 107 horsepower (80 kW), 139 hp (105 kW) when the other, unused bank of fuel injectors is activated, and over 162 hp (120 kW) in race trim. The R7 is built for racing 'out of the box', implied by the chassis built with Öhlins suspension components, the shortened Deltabox II frame and weight of just slightly over the 162 kg minimum of superbike regulations.
